Today, Meridian’s software division, Mzero, announced the release of MzeroMobile, a series of applications that bring the robust capabilities of Mzero software to tablet devices. This development comes as a response to the growing demand of tablets in self-service kiosks. Currently, the application is compatible with the Apple iPad and will be developed for android use in the future.
MzeroMobile can be downloaded and installed to the iPad for customers requiring that device in their self-service solution. Upon launch, the application will display a splash screen and starts by pointing to a default home page that can be customized by the administrator. MzeroMobile enables the lockdown of mobile and internet websites and allows Mzero’s performance management feature to monitor the usage and status of the solution. Additionally, the monitoring feature will send reports about the device and peripherals as issues arise, allowing for maximum uptime.
MzeroMobile’s security features include:
● Secure browser
● Optional URL white-listing - prevent user access to unwanted sites and applications.
● Reporting tools (reports URLs, number of users, duration of usage startup history, alarms, alarm history)
● Administrator Screen
● Idle-timeout – returns iPad to home page after period of time
● MzeroCloud dashboard
● Real time notification of the state of health
● Anti-tamper and anti-theft alerts (optional)
MzeroMobile may optionally be paired with automatic application distribution, iOS updating and Mobile Device Management (MDM) through additional MzeroCloud managed services. The roadmap items include the ability customize the attract screen through editors on the MzeroCloud. “This application will transform the way our customers will think about self-service,” comments Paul Burden, Director of Software. “By offering our best-in-class security and management features to tablet devices, we are truly staying in line with the growing trend of mobilization in the industry.”
